Plaque Text

Last stand of France in Canada. Fort de Lévis, on Isle Royale, (Chimney Island) was built by Captain François Pouchot in the spring and early summer of 1760. Its garrison surrendered after a gallant defence, on 25th August, 1760, to the British army commanded by Sir Jeffrey Amherst. Siege batteries were established on this point and on adjacent islands.
